I've always used split view and never had that problem until now. Did  somebody say there is a revision 217 of Doug's scripts? I'm only getting revision 212.

Hi guys,

Doug, thanks for that, I downloaded revision 217from the link you gave us. I had once again the issue about Windows Defender smart screen when launching the file, so I needed to press further information link and then Run anyway button.

Sarah, I am actually not sure. I always use split view mode and I had issues also in the past where typing indicators weren't working properly, or should I say weren't working at all, but I don't know if this has to do with the Skype language which is italian or with split view. That is why I asked Gary if he enabled it or not.

This update came out yesterday as far as I can tell. I fixed the Skype typing issue and another issue or two
last night but don't have documentation updated yet, and so had not put out a release. For emergency update in
the mean time, people can grab the installer as it evolves from https://www.dlee.org/updates/jfw_skype.exe

hello all,


Just got a skype update to,  version 8.82.0.404. I've installed the latest

quit and restarted it as well as restarted the computer. also it repeats
history just by alt tabbing into a conversation window. Any ideas?

Would split view cause the type sound to be repeated, if I understand the issue? If not, please correct me.

I'm using nvda, but can you reload the scripts in jaws? I remember you used to be able to do so. If you can, try that in skype for its scripts. I have never had the typer sound continue when I'm not in a chat before.

2. Find the contact.

Hi,

I think the only way to do it is to go into the person's profile.
Although there's a way to simply delete contacts, I've found that
the best way is to actually click on the "block contact" button.

Hi there. I have a few people in my contacts who are now dead but I
can't for the life of me get rid of them. Also I seem to have a lot
of contacts which say after their name, read only. Does that mean I
no longer have them on skype and I can get rid of them too? Thanks.

Hey Kimmi,
It could be the wrong version of Skype you have. :-)
If you'd like some private help Europe time I'll be willing to help you out
either using jaws tandem or NVDA remote.

Best regards
Brian

Very strange. Even if I pull up the context menu on a favorited
contact
and
see "Remove from favorites" as a choice, I still also see "Delete
contact."

I suggest trying the Microsoft Disability Answer Desk: 1-800-936-5900

The way I delete a contact, rarely though I do it, is this:

1. Type Alt+2 to bring up the contact list.

2. Find the contact.

3. Press the Menu or Application key to get a context menu for the
contact.

4. Select the "Delete Contact" option and press Enter.

I just verified this process in Skype 8.78.0.159.

Latest Skype version for Windows desktop is 8.78.0.159. Not sure
if it has been updated for Microsoft Store, if you still have 8.77
and you used the Store app, try to open the Windows store, go to
the view more menu, and choose downloads and updates, and finally
find recover updates and you press space and verify if it's get
updated.
Alternatively, pass to the Windows desktop one going here:
